From this post by Reliapundit, webmaster of THE ASTUTE BLOGGERS:
IT DOESN'T END WELL FOR THE DEMOCRATS,This past week has indeed seen three Dems fleeing a sinking ship. Just the beginning? We'll see. The 2010 mid-term elections will tell the tale.
BUT IT HAS A HAPPY ENDING FOR THE NATION.
With a less joyous point of view on the fleeing Dems and the 2010 elections, WC recently wrote "Don't Pop the Champagne Corks Yet," an essay on the topic. Please read the essay below the fold and weigh in with your opinion:
Fox News reports:
As top Dems abandon their posts, Republicans are cautiously upbeat about chances of taking Senate seats. Sen. Chris Dodd, who has represented Connecticut for more than three decades in Congress, announced Wednesday that he will not run for re-election in November.
Dodd joined two other prominent Democrats Wednesday in ditching plans to run for office in the fall.
So – should we be cheering?
Not necessarily. This news worries me.
The Democrats today are a new political beast willing to commit political suicide over the last year to jam their Progressive agenda down
’s throats - consequences to the Party be damned. Democratic Senators and Congressmen and Governors are seeing the hand writing on the wall and are dropping out of races in their States and Districts. America
This is not necessarily good news for Republicans.
I would rather face a dangerous WOUNDED beast than a healthy unknown one - one that will try to spoof Independents again with words like moderate or conservative Democrat. And that’s what Republican contenders could very well be facing in November.
We know now, watching the arrogance of ALL Democrats in Congress, that there is no such thing as a moderate or conservative Democrat. But the new beasts running in 2010 will try to pull the wool over the voter’s eyes once again.
I hate to be a party pooper but don't pop the Champagne Corks Yet on the news that prominent Democrats are dropping like flies.
